(I crawled out of the world, and you said I shouldn't stay.)
I walked worlds of smoke and half-truths, intangible. Worlds of torment and of unnamable beauty. Opaline towers as high as small moons. Glaciers that rippled with insensate lust. And one world with nothing but shrimp. I tired of that one quickly.
Illyria is one of The Old Ones, an ancient demon who was once worshiped as a god, and then confined for millennia in a place known as The Deeper Well. She was called back from her long slumber and placed inside her new vessel, a human known as Winifred Burkle. Though the vessel's mind and soul were consumed in order to give live to Illyria, fragments of her memories and personality remain within Illyria's consciousness.
Finding her old kingdom gone, and her followers long-dead, Illyria is now attempting to fit in as best she can, and not always doing the best job of it.
Illyria can occasionally pass for human by taking on the form of her body's former owner, if she chooses, but most of the time she's got a distinctly unnatural blue tinge to her hair, skin, and eyes. She's the essence of an ancient demon-goddess in the body of a human woman, and you can tell that something's a little off about the too-precise way that she speaks, and the slightly unnatural way that she moves about in her new body.
If your pup has an especially keen sense of smell, he/she/it might notice that she does not smell like anything at all.
theatrical_muse: For RP purposes, her main timeline is several years post-canon and fairly well-established, but I'm open to alternate RP timelines if people are interested. For prompt purposes, she's all over the place and I'll draw from canon, RP stuff, and comicverse as it suits the prompt. She can also occasionally be found in a possible future of this timeline, during which she's in the Firefly universe and is usually found appearing as a Companion. (Illyria makes no comment on whether or not she actually is one in all senses of the word, but notes that people are free to assume what they will and she is free to correct their assumptions one way or another. :3)
apharsites: Now defunct, but her in-game history has been migrated over to shatterverse, where she's taken up with a past-version of deathonnahorse, who she'd been involved with the modern-day version of in the prior RP's storyline.
If I don't label something, it's likely to be meta or free-for-all.
Illyria is from Angel the Series, and is the property of Joss Whedon & Mutant Enemy. She is portrayed by Amy Acker in her icons as on the show. Illyria appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in milliways_bar, otherways, apharsites and theatrical_muse from which no profit whatsoever is being made.
